    B.

    I bought a case with a power supply in it. I installed the Mobo, memory, drives, and Carnetix supply, and mounted the Lilliput into the dash all by myself, with the only help being answers to questions I asked here.

    Parts I had lying around. Only thing I bought was the LCD, PSUs, and VGA and USB extenders.

    while mine is yet to be built, determined plans comprise of both B and D. got some parts lying around such as the motherboard and HSF for the cpu. will probably have to buy the cpu and memory separately. but the motherboard already has onboard video and audio so that atleast gets the carpc started.

    E. I built everything from scratch. Lots of trips to Rat Shack, I tell you!

    Actually, it's more like 80% B, and 20% E.
